In the ship Jor-El switches the atmosphere to human so Clark has his super strength back. This forces Zod and his crew to don suits providing Krypton atmosphere, thus killing their super powers. But right after they return to the Clark farm in their suits (Krypton atmosphere) they have full superpowers. This goes on through the the next major fight scene. See more »
Will you not understand? Krypton's core is collapsing! We may only have a matter of weeks! I warned you, harvesting the core was suicide! It has accelerated the process of implosion!
Our energy reserves were exhausted. What would you have us do, El?
Look to the stars, like our ancestors did! There are habitable worlds within reach. We can begin by using the old outposts.
Are you seriously suggesting that we evacuate the entire planet?
No, everybody here is already dead. Give me control...

So we are looking at essentially a remake of Superman (nothing wrong with that).
So how does it compare? Favourably.
The original is perhaps a little softer, more romantic and more idyllic whereas the remake is darker, richer and a little more interesting.
2 changes that worked for me, the origin part of the story on Krypton which is much more expansive (creating more of a universe feel, literally) and the extended character of Superman Senior. Brando was the quintessential sci-fi 'head in a bottle' character using him to explain Supe's back story in the original, Crowe's character came full combat ready and I think it added well to the overall story.
Really enjoyable effort that sits well as a representative of the DC universe :)
